We spend a lot of time in offices all over the country, so we get to see all the different ways that companies are trying to reduce their environmental footprint.
Supplying snacks for all these offices means we’re even more aware of how we can better serve businesses looking to go green.
Here are the strategies we have developed with our customers to achieve a greener and healthier planet!
1. We provide bulk snacks and drinks to cut down on waste.
We love giving our customers the tastiest and healthiest snacks that we can find, and with larger offices that means packages, wrappers and containers can quickly build up.
Instead, we find out what their favourite snacks are and stock them in our stylish dispensers!
This lets them nibble away on what they want the most of without having to throw out wrapper after wrapper.
Thirsty for more? We also provide large sized beverages for offices looking to kick their cans out the door, complete with compostable cups to pour your pop, juice, and flavoured water into.
2. We refuse to use coffee pods and other non-recyclable single use plastics.
One of the greatest contributors to our global environmental crisis are plastic items designed to be quickly used and then easily discarded.
These plastics and coffee pods take an average of 450 years to decompose. Now consider that we throw out roughly 10 billion coffee pods a year, all of them un-recyclable.
It’s unconscionable to add any more waste to landfills and our oceans.
So Desk Nibbles has made a commitment to refuse to use non-recyclable single use plastics such as plastic straws, cutlery, and other utensils.
3. We partner with groups like TerraCycle to repurpose, reuse, and upcycle snack packaging.
Not every city uses the same recycling program, and oftentimes employees can forget to toss their snack wrapper into the right container. This means waste can end up in environments where it doesn’t belong.
TerraCycle is a group we can introduce into offices that offers solutions to all sorts of waste that homes and offices create.
Their Zero Waste Boxes collect your wrappers and excess packaging to be shipped off to their recycling facilities and processing plants.
With redeemable prizes, charitable donations, and upcycling guides for everyday products, we’re proud to work alongside TerraCycle.
4. We use reusable containers to transport our delicious snacks to offices across the country.
Our dedicated account managers stock offices every week with fresh fruit, delicious beverages and tasty snacks.
Instead of adding on even more packaging to the process, we utilize reusable bins to transport our products from warehouse to workplace.
